Dear Friends and Family,
I was really hoping for the opportunity to say this in person before it got out on the internet. Just didn’t know it would come around so fast. The dance floor at the Loop will soon no longer be our home.
In 2008 I met Dan Hurley at a party the day after my departure from the Cadillac Ranch. That night he invited me to come to his little place called Celebrations Unlimited in an industrial park in Plainville. The following week, I was introduced to a small band of dancers that had recently lost their dance instructor and friend, Chris Haddock.
It started off as a DJing gig, just spinning what ever songs those few dancers wanted played. After a few weeks, they asked me to teach them some dances I knew and so it began… or maybe was revived. A group (that more resembles a family) oriented to dancing and a new career for a DJ as an instructor.
Anyway, it happened and our little group of less than ten dancers grew. We taught each other dance and told our friends about it. Before too long the group grew with friends from other dance groups.
We went threw three owners and name changes together. To this day, the dancers and that dance floor were the longest lasting things in that room.
December 30th will be our last Wednesday at the Loop.
And as we know: When one dance ends, the next one begins…
Myself, Sheryl and some of our very close dance friends have started the process of locating a new dance floor in the Plainville area to call home. We may settle with an interim location as we search for something permanent. And of course, we don’t want to settle for OK in the end. We want good, great or better.
We encourage everyone to come on out for the last few Wednesdays with us and do what we all love to do within each other’s company… dance!
If I have not expressed this enough, I will put it in writing now:
I love what all of us have done for each other. Every memory, dance, laugh and hug. We have gone through so much together and it is what we can all take with us to anywhere the dance leads. Let us celebrate these last few weeks as we prepare for our next step. As sad as this is, it is quite exciting as well.
Thank you all for being family.
See you on the floor,
Aric, Sheryl, Chris, Dan & Meghan,
STM, Celebrations Unlimited & Rockwells
